J.J. Watt in wedding cake form? Delicious defense.
A big fan of the Houston Texans celebrating the most important day of his life decided to pay tribute to his favorite player with a cake of giant, pass-swatting defensive end. The cake was originally was firs tweeted by one Bryan Eoff, a friend of the bride and groom.
The J.J. Watt wedding cake picture took off from there, making its way to sports blogs like Off the Bench from NBC Sports.
The Yahoo! Sports blog Shutdown Corner gave props to the bride for allowing such a sport-centric, borderline creepy cake at her wedding. But the blog also noted there could be some difficult with the J.J. Watt wedding cake:
“Where do you even start to cut into that thing? Would you have the guts to take a cake knife to that helmet? We’ve seen what Watt can do to quarterbacks … and we’ve seen enough reality shows to know that might just be an elaborate goof and the real Watt is hidden within.”
This season J.J. Watt tore through opposing defenses, combining his giant frame and nimble feet to wreak havoc on quarterbacks. His pass-swatting ability and ability to get to the quarterback helped Watt earn a nearly unanimous vote for NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
There was no word on who made the J.J. Watt wedding cake or what the Houston Texan star thinks of it, but maybe he can be getting one of his own soon.
In case you missed it last week, a 6-year-old fan told her mother that she wanted to marry Watt and was crying because she wasn’t 25 years old. Watt heard about it and used his Twitter followers to track the girl down, then asked her to be his pretend wife for the day.
Here is the J.J. Watt wedding cake, in all its glory:
